    One of my favorite quotes is, "Small minds are easily amused." That just about covers it....Piene2

    I wholeheartedly agree. The small minds of America are quite lucky to have a leader like you.

    "School bus crashes in Hoke County"

    Thank you!

    and we have our daily school bus crash. I wouldn't even let my kids ride a bus anymore in NC. somethings gotta be done about these drivers. seriously there is a crash at least once a week. my memory of riding buses was scary, the drivers sped everywhere and alomost got in accidents all the time.

    Hey, anyone heard about a bus wreck this morning?

    "Hi piene2, Everyone that comments here on a WRAL article has a small mind.LocalYokel"

    guess that means you're small minded as well then doesn't it?

  • cantstandgoloanymore Nov 13, 10:33 a.m.

    chrisnrali - you've never been in a vehicle that has slid due to wet leaves, hydroplaning, oil or debris on the roadway, snow or any other possibly slick surface? Or are you just an i***t trying to make yourself look somehow superior? I'm betting on the latter.

  • justabumer Nov 13, 10:28 a.m.

    I live not far from where this happened and it rained during the night. Perhaps the road was wet which could contribute to the accident.

    Hi piene2, Everyone that comments here on a WRAL article has a small mind.

    "How does a bus "slide" off the highway? Someone steered it off the highway."

    While there may be other causes, I would think, just based on the warnings this morning during traffic segments, that the bus slid off the road on wet leaves or something like that. Trying to give the driver the benefit here as it is possible that is what happened.

    or do these accidents draw more media attention?

    ....You have the winning answer. News feeds 24/7 every where you turn makes the news business very competitive. We hear instantly about events that in the past we might never have heard of. Technology has made it possible to get news instantly, as it happens, from anywhere on the planet....so we have news saturation.

  • LovemyPirates Nov 13, 9:35 a.m.

    Are there more accidents involving school buses or are there more school buses on the road in which to be involved in accidents or do these accidents draw more media attention?
    How's that for use of grammatically correct syntax?

    Hey, here's a thought: I hope everyone involved is ok and that the kids won't be scared to ride a bus again.

    Grammatically correct or not.

  • VW girl 2013 Nov 13, 9:12 a.m.

    Enough with the grammer corrections...is anyone concerned that these school busses, which carry children in them without seatbelts, have been involved in several accidents this school year!?!? I see stories about these "accidents" all over the NC news. Something needs to be done about this before children are killed. Better training, smaller routes, shorter hours...I don't know the answer, but someone needs to find one QUICK!

  • chrisnrali Nov 13, 9:10 a.m.

    btw, does every wreck in the morning get this much attention or is it JUST because there was some children on a bus?
